Yule, or Dec. 21, is the winter solstice, which held and still holds great spiritual meaning. To the Celts, the year began with the winter season, and it gave way to warmth and sunlight, just as life begins in darkness before it comes to light. We celebrate the longest night of the year on this day, and it's considered a liminal time, perfect for magick.
But winter is more than just Yule. During this season, we spend time inside, in reflection and in solitude, taking rest. For some, this may mean settling down with a good book and a warm tea; for others, it may mean learning about ourselves and perhaps growing spiritually through our craft.
Our 12 Days of Yule compendium offers you a way to bring both of those together. Each of our "12 Days" provides enrollees with a winter folktale to snuggle up to and read, as well as an original story-inspired spell to add to your Book of Shadows or grimoire. These folktales stem beyond Perchta and Baba Yaga; here, we encounter children stumbling into the winter woods, fairies who usher in the seasons, little sprites who fall victim to winter's field mice, and more. This course is on demand. Once purchased, you will receive a zipped file to download.
Let's sit by the fire together, reading letters of enchantment and practicing our magic.
